It is hard to believe that Summer 2018 has passed us. The only common theme this summer seems to have been the incredible amount of rain. By far, this has been one of the wettest summers in our memory. In fact, according to our weather resources, we’ve had over 25 inches of rainfall this summer, which is almost 8 inches over the normal! We like to look on the bright side of things, that much rainfall would mean an enormous amount of snow! Which would you rather prefer?
Despite what felt like nonstop showers & constant rain delays, our summer was busy! We’ve been active transforming backyard living areas, enhancing front landscapes and walkways, and doing our best to stay on top of maintaining the ever fast-growing-grass. We would like to thank all of our customers for keeping us busy (& understanding it’s been wet!). We are already looking forward to what 2019 has on tap.
This summer we also made time to give back. We awarded a Northwest Area High School Student with a college scholarship in the name of our late beloved dog, Lily, who we lost unexpectedly last year. Although we were devastated about losing Lily, we decided as both a team and family that we had to do something positive in her name because she was so special. We know that Lily is happily barking in doggy heaven. Speaking of dogs, Boulder also donated a brick patio area in the newly opened Berwick Community Dog Park. We encourage you to take your furry friend for a quick walk on the next nice fall day!
Fall is the perfect time to clean up your landscape in preparation of winter. It’s a great time to install mulch as it will protect root systems from frost and also help keep moisture during the cold and dry winter. It’s also an opportunity to manicure the landscape. Removing annuals, trimming up perennials and grasses, and pruning dead or dying branches from shrubs and trees will keep the landscape looking sharp all winter long.
As we look forward to the leaves changing colors, the air feels crisper, the nights are getting cooler; the thought of Thanksgiving & Holiday fun times are right around the corner. Happy Fall everyone!
